Styling Idea # 234 Bougainvillea meets Peach and Blue

INSPIRATION FOR THIS POST

A recent image on The Sartorialist prompted this colour combination- take inspiration from Bougainvillea! Lovely

TRANSLATION: TRY THIS AT HOME

  • Take inspiration from crisp clear blue skies (oh where you have you gone??) and use sky blue in sheets, linen and lamps
  • Add inspiration from earthy palettes of peach and sand with fabric upholstery, piping on cushions, blonde woods, light floorboards
  • Add the bougainvillea purple from the source itself (nature does this colour best!!)
  • Remember blue and purple on their own are…sweet- what really brings this to life is the injection of the peach
